I have had the problem of the water pump on my Asko Model D3121 running continuously several times. I contacted Asko customer service and they told me that the reason that this is happening could be that I am using too much dishwasher detergent. I was told to use a little less than 1 tablespoon for each load. The customer service person told me to actually measure it out. It is not very much. But, this doesn't fix the problem if it exists. To try to fix this, first turn off the circuit breaker for the machine or unplug the machine, whichever is easier. I was also told that there are 3 filters on the bottom part of the inside of the dishwasher. There is a grey basket that you squeeze the sides and remove. Underneath this grey basket, there is another basket that you unscrew and there is a wire mesh filter piece that the basket sits on. I was told to clean all of these filters with warm soapy water. Then, inside the hole underneath all of the filters, there is a yellow plug on the side. You pull this out (be sure to observe how the plug fits into the side of the hole since I didn't pay attention and it took me a long time to figure out it goes back in) and stick you finger inside the hole to see if there is any debris stuck in there. If there is, you should take it out. The reason the pump keeps running is because there is water in the pan underneath the dishwasher. It is really hard to get to the pan without removing the front lower panel and this is really hard to do. So, what I did was take some dishtowels and I stuck them into the hole that all of the filters fit into (I had removed all the filters and the yellow plug). I kept using dry towels as the others got wet. This sucked up a lot of the water. I then took a turkey baster and tried to angle it into the hole and try to **** up more water. Someone also said to use a syringe or maybe one of those kitchen syringes that you use to inject butter or flavoring into food. After I got as much water out as possible, I turned on the circuit for the dishwasher but the dishwasher pump was still running. I turned the circuit breaker back off and then I waited two days and whatever water was left must have evaporated. The pump stoppped running when I turned the circuit breaker back on. Once the pump stops running, YOU NEED TO CLOSE THE DOOR TO THE DISHWASHER AND HOLD THE START BUTTON IN FOR A FEW SECONDS. The machine will start making noise while you are holding the start button in but then there will be a "click" kind of noise and the dishwasher will turn off. This RESETS the machine. I didn't do this the first time and I ended up with the pump running again. Sorry the solution is so long but I wanted it to be detailed so maybe I could save someone the agony I went through. But it worked and I got to cancel the repair appointment which was going to cost a minimum of $185.
Also, I was told that every 3 to 6 months, I should clean out the filters and also put a bowl with 2 cups of lemon juice on the bottom basket of the dishwasher and run it without only the bowl in there. Customer service said that I could use vinegar but that the lemon juice smells better.
I hope this helps someone!

The power will not shut off


Usually in a miele dishwasher when the power does not shut off this is due to a leak condition in which the pump is trying to pump any access water due to a leak out of the unit in which the drain pump of the unit will run continueously to avoid water to come out of the sealed bottom and spill all over your floor. One of the first things that would distinguish if this were the case in your unit, would be if you could hear the drain pump running. This can also happen if you have a clog either in the drain pump or in the drain line or in the port hole where the drain pushes the water into your disposal. If you do not hear the drain pump running. As to the door latch it basicly tells the control that the door is either opened and not to turn on the cycle or closed and then to turn on the cycle and begin to wash. You can also check to assure that you have no leaks by pulling the unit out by deinstalling the unit and removeing the bottom base panel to see if there is any water inside. If you find there is no water and no clogs and you do not hear the drain pump working message me back for further diagnosis. I await your reply.
Thank you
Rick

Model D1776 Continues to Fill with Water/Drain Pump Engages After Wash Cycle Is Complete


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Check how to remove the control panel: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/dishwashers/a/3/1287/how-to-replace-a-hotpoint-dishwasher-fascia-p.html

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn around to inject with pressure. If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

If so the pump must be checked for clogging.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

My Asko 3250 worked fine till today. The drain turns on, then the water fills, and then I hear clicks, and then nothing. When the lid is opened, the water inlet fault flashes and it won't go past...


The click is for the motor to start up and so when you do not hear the motor and pump working this needs to be probed. The cycle seems to start off well, the inlet works to open andlet water into the washer. Now check the voltage at the pump while the relay clicks. If there is supply without action then the pump /motor is faulty. If not there is fault in the program controller or relay contacts.
You need to use a multimeter to check the voltages if you are familiar with the circuits.
This will confirm if the motor is good or the pump is working.

Our Asko D3112 was not draining, so we had maintenance drain the hoses to clear any blockage but it did nothing. They said it must be our pump not working. I ran one more cycle to see if things went back...


Check your manual to see if you have a drain pan at the bottom of the unit, and a 'float' that checks for water collecting there. On at least some Asko models, water collecting in the pan causes the float to rise, which then changes the operation of the dishwasher. Once that float switch turns on, the diskwasher will always run the drain pump whenever power is applied.
If this is the case for your machine, remove the kick panel. There likely is another panel behind that which covers the 'internals', including the drain pan area. You'll have to remove all of the water in the pan, and that will lower the float and return the controller to normal operation. THen you will have to diagnose the cause of the water collecting in the pan.
Another possibility is damage to the float such that it has turned on it's switch despite no water collecting in the drain pan. I've heard that in some cases a mouse will chew on the float and damage it, causing such machine operation.
In another thread, I posted my solutions to one cause of water collecting in the drain pan. In that case the drain pump was no longer reliably moving water out of the sump area inside the dishwasher. I had thought it was the manual dial control on my d1706 unit, until I learned that the dishwasher has this 'special' drain pan mode.

Doesn't shut off


i think you are hearing the drain pump going. take the bottom front panel off so as to expose the bottom tray. yoy willprobably find this full of water. mop water out and it should work. if fault reoccurs then you have a leak.
turn power off first
